Hit & Run Driver Kills Woman on Beach Road in Kill Devil Hills, NC

Comments (0)
Police are hoping the public can help them solve a deadly hit & run that happened on Friday night on the Outer Banks. Kill Devil Hills police say a woman standing in the bike lane in front of the Quality Inn on Highway 12 was killed in the accident around the time 8:00 p.m.

Police say the woman from Vienna, Virginia had crossed Highway 12 and was waiting for her daughter to cross the road. A northbound vehicle drifted into the bike lane and struck her, and kept on driving without stopping.

The 65-year-old woman, Peggy Butler, was visiting the Outer Banks on vacation with her family. Police say the vehicle was a light colored, small to medium sized sport utility vehicle.

Hit-and-run has severe legal consequences including the potential suspension or revocation of one's driver's license, as well as imprisonment. Lifetime revocation of a driver license is possible in certain jurisdictions.

Living with the knowledge that a mother died because of your driving should be another reason to obey the law and render assistance. I hope that the person who caused this tragedy reads about it and turns themselves in. It is the least that they can do given what they did to this family.
